Look at your memory card. SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

SOURCE: protected feature

There are 2 probable solutions. 1. The images are "protected" by the camera & will show "locked" when you try to erase them. 2. The SD card in the camera is locked. The solution to 1 is to unlock the images in the playback menu. See page 46 of the manual. Note that you need to select "unlock" you can't select protect as they are already protected! Solution 2 is to remove the card from the camera & check the "lock" slider that you can see on the side (although no all cards have this). Set the lock off. You can download the manual from the first link on the following page: http://www.vivitar.com/manuals/english/ViviCam6300/CameraManual.pdf Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

I have a picture that has a green key in the upper right hand corner. I cannot delete that picture.


It's protected. Unprotection is the same as protection. While in play mode, go into the menu and look for the "protect" item. Use it on that image to remove the protection and you will be able to delete it.

Comment back if you have trouble finding the menu item.

I have a Kodak Easy Share C182 . I want to delete some pictures and it tells me to remove protection to delete, and it also tells me image is protected please tellmje stepby step how to clear this...


The most common cause for telling you that the card is locked is having the tiny slide switch on the side of the card in the wrong position.
- see photo below:
Set the lock slider to locked or unlocked.man-3ds-sdcardlockswitch-287-181.png
  • The down position will enable write-protection, locking the card.
  • The up position will unlock the card, enabling you to save and erase data on the card

Downloading from camera to the computer


connect your cmaera with the given conneccting linking cord to the PC. The PC will detect your camera and ask for action --mostly.
If not you can click on the new device in My computer folder - new drive.
open this and the photos will be seen. You can copy and paste or send it by right clicking to the documents- my picture folder.
Alternatively you can take the memory card and download directly with the card reader slot - if present in you PC or laptop.

I'm having trouble deleting pictures any advice would be helpfull.


normal procedure for deleting images using a dscs700 cam.
1. press playback button (button you use for viewing images, located just above the lcd screen,left side w/arrow icon pointing to the left)
2.salect the image by pressing the left or right control button
3.once image to be deleted is selected, press the delete button (2 black squares w/a slash and garbage can icon,below the control buttons on the left side).
4.select delete option by pressing the up control button.
5.press middle of the control button to confirm.
...or if you would like to just remove everything on the memory stick including protected images you can just format the ms by:
1.press menu to diplay menu settings.
2.press right control button to go to setup (looks like a toolbox or suitcase icon) and press the right control button again.
3.press the down control button to go to Memory Stick Tool and press right again to confirm selection.
4.press right control button to select format.
5.press up control to select ok and press middle control button. message will appear telling you that "all data in ms will be erased.ready?"
6'press up control to select ok and confirm by pressing middle control button.format completed.
hope this info helps. thanks:)

Yellow lines appear in picture after taken. Picture color is way off even when lines are not very apparent. Does not do this all the time! Picture quality is excellent when all is well!! Whats up??????


Ok dont worry about that, first thing you need to do is to remove the memory card., Turn On cmaera wothout memory card, now press menu button and go to setup menu and under setup menu please look for format then press Ok, under format please for mat the internal memory.

Now if you already reformat the internal memory, take atleast 3 pictures on a same subject., then hit review if the lines appeared on both pictures on same location, it means camera needs of service please call Kodak toll free 1 800 235 6325., For U.S and canada support. Gudluck!

Removal of write protection


Sounds like you will need to format the internal memory of the camera. This will permanently erase all the data from the memory and then you will be able to use it again. To format the memory: Press the Ok button - right arrow to Mode Menu - down arrow to Card tab - right arrow to card setup - right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the write protect message and the memory can be used again.
